Face masks to be worn on all Air New Zealand international flights to and from NZ

From tomorrow, Air New Zealand will require the use of face masks on all its international flights to and from New Zealand as a result of updated overseas government border requirements, and as a further proactive safety measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Currently customers travelling on the airline domestically, as well as between Australia, Rarotonga, Samoa, South Korea and Tonga are subject to local government requirements to wear masks inflight.

Air New Zealand Chief Operational Integrity and Safety Officer David Morgan says the airline continues to proactively review operational processes to keep its customers, employees, and New Zealand safe.

For the latest information, customers can check the Air New Zealand COVID-19 Hub or the New Zealand Government website.
